Can read and understand a bit of Japanese and Russian.
I like cute things and insects. Ants pass the mirror test btw, so maybe don’t kill them.
Oh, thanks for replying and input.
What led you to being some interested in these fields?
Mostly boredom. I’ve (lazily) tried chaos magic before, read a few popular Grimoires, practiced some breathing techniques from Internal Alchemy, did divination w/ I Ching, but I treat all of these efforts as a whimsical joke or a form of entertainment.
Psychic research on the other hand just bothers me. I don’t understand why it’s funded, and just looking at papers does nothing because they’re untrustworthy, so the only way to know if it’s fake or not is to do it myself. For now I’m just (lazily) doing RNG tests and collecting more info. At worst it’s a funny distraction.
I have only dabbled around tulpamancy, what is your experience with it?
I made a few tulpas after learning the concept years ago. It’s mostly made my internal dialogue (?) a bit more interesting, and lets me keep track of bad habits. (like swearing, bad posture, etc) I guess servitors are a similar concept.
My tulpa can also give “me” orders, which is just an alternative way to motivate oneself - think of the difference between wanting to do something, and having a friend ask you to do something. I’ve not bothered to learn techniques like imposition or possession. (they sound fake)
A part of me would want to understand how tulpamancy relates to the idea of bicameral mentality, but both topics are sorta vague and border on insanity.
What is reverse imposition from tulpamancy?
My info says it’s a part of a technique for switching control w/ a tulpa, it’s said to “take away senses” from the real world. The name contrasts it w/ imposition, which projects fake sensations onto the real world. Read this guide, idk. It sounds very fake, and I’ll probably never bother trying it. (tbf, tulpamancy in general sounds like nonsense - and the MLP crowd makes it worse)
trials you are conducting would work much better if the “RNG” was a living being, particularly someone you have a very deep emotional/spiritual/etc
Oh, I agree, and these sorts of tests are done all the time. IIRC tests on twin telepathy were conducted by the Society for Psychical Research ages ago, and it is said to yield greater results than with strangers, somehow. It’s worth saying that humans are very bad at producing random sequences, so it could be a factor.
What I’m looking for is specifically psychokinesis tho, and for this reason an RNG that I can’t understand or manipulate is most important. If what I’m looking at in my data is specifically some “paranormal” influence, and not a stroke of chance or hardware/software error, it could be called “probability manipulation”.
Would love to hear more!!!
I’m not exactly knowledgeable, you probably know far more about the occult than me lol.
To be completely frank, I mostly want to weaponize psychokinesis as a means of self-defense, if it’s exists. It’s a very childish idea, and if it was feasible, intelligence agencies would’ve done that by now.
Right now, I’m mostly interested in macro-PK and poltergeist phenomena, because these could serve as much more concrete evidence for existence of paranormal phenomena than statistical abnormalities. One of explanations for poltergeists is dubbed Recurrent Spontaneous Psychokinesis, which is the reason I’m interested in them at all.
A few months ago I tried moving a compass needle with PK for the first time in ages, and while the effort was futile, it coincided with a power outage in my block. These don’t occur often here, so it’s a strange coincidence lol.
There’s a video of Nina Kulagina, and the bit where she marks plastic caps is very strange. The researcher doing narration says these marks display a change of structure and can’t be wiped with water or alcohol. The bit where she destroys acetate yarn is also…strange. (these segments are at 15 and 19 minutes respectively)
The motions she’s doing are quite interesting. My own approach may be a dead end, as I only try to mimic the way I use PK in my dreams - meaning I try to focus on an object from a far distance, unlike Ninel, who puts her hands close to the object, or even touches it at times.
In the last test, she produced an effective force of 2.5 kg onto a measuring device, which should be way more than enough to levitate small objects, which she doesn’t showcase, and probably can’t sustain. Meanwhile, physical mediums like D.D. Home have been described as being capable of levitating things quite easily, with no toll to their health. I think it’s all fake still, but I’ve read of a notion that said the lack of belief in paranormal phenomena by humanity at large may have…increased the cost of PK.
very valuable to us as an entire species and culture
Thanks for words of encouragement but all I’m really doing is flipping (digital) coins. It’s been done before, and my data is near-useless. A better method for searching for anomalies in random data would be looking at how well players do in Gacha games, and what sets some apart from the rest. Maybe people who always get SSRs or waifus they want are all potential psychics lol. They’d make better test subjects than me.
I meditate with my eyes open I can turn the entire world into, like, washed out high contrast static…
Your experience seems very vivid, I only saw similar things when having a lucid dream.
What are PK trials? Are you trying to telekinetically affect random number generators, is that what you’re saying?
Yes, but not just. My trials are split into Interference-type and Prediction-type tests. The first one tests for PK, second one - ESP.
The intent in Prediction-type tests is just to “guess” the number you’re going to get, w/o trying to affect the generator. I’d prefer to further split it to test specifically for Clairvoyance/RV and specifically for Precognition (temporal RV?), but my ideas are lacking.
In both types of tests, I use RNG to generate integers - either 0 or 1 (a coin toss), or some range of numbers. I then log results and what I wanted/predicted, or the difference between the two, along w/ some comments. I also use coins and cards sometimes, but it slows the process down a lot.
This is very primitive and I’d prefer to write a program that continuously generates and outputs values of numbers on a time graph, so I could just look at spikes for anomalies, but I can’t code and I have no clue whether frequency at which numbers are generated may affect results, so I’m doing things manually for now.
So far, the results suggest I can do micro-PK for a short time, but can’t do ESP, lmao. Which is strange, because I view ESP as a prerequisite for PK. (still can’t draw conclusions tho)
My current measures are mostly unproductive, since I don’t sense anything strange or unusual when attempting PK or ESP. It’s a bit like hammering a nail or playing Touhou blindfolded.
I should find some ways to induce complete sensory deprivation to see if my normal senses are blotting out anything, and my current leads are the Ganzfeld effect and…reverse imposition from tulpamancy. (bruh…)
It’s worth noting that I don’t actually believe in ESP and PK. I’m only trying to replicate sketchy studies and observations, because I can’t trust them. (…And if one assumes psychic interactions to be real, my lack of faith in these things is also affecting results, as some theories suggest…)
Thanks for bringing up this topic.
For the sake of forming a complete opinion on this topic you should probably examine studies looking at physiological effects of meditation. From what I can tell it could be an additional tool used to combat neurodegenerative disease.
Meditation practitioners report unusual trance states, gaining a better understanding of which could lead to advancements in hypnosis techniques and produce better results in psychotherapy. (This is pure speculation, but these seem to be related)
For me, meditation is just an activity that elicits a bodily response.
I do Taoist and Zen-inspired meditation irregularly, mostly focused on erasing all thought. During and after sessions I usually feel like I can concentrate much better, and find it easier to form complex sentences. Plus it reduces eye strain from screens. Effects are short-lasting though.
Somehow found a semi-reliable way to induce strong (vomit-inducing) nausea by focusing on a certain part of my awareness when meditating. My health is decent, so it’s interesting that meditation can trigger such a response lol.
It may also sound deranged, but I do PK trials with random number generators as a part of my dabbling into parapsychology, and the results seem get skewed more if I meditate before rolling my numbers. 💀 (as of yet, the data I collected is limited tho)
I just watched it. Chose the Russian dub, since it’s a rare novelty.
It’s so insanely bad LMAOOOO
I feel sooo sorry for the studio who worked hard on this. At first I thought it’s just surreal, but it’s mostly a result of incompetence.
Characters have absolutely zero personality. It’s the worst I’ve ever seen by far. They just “do things
plot script needs them to do”. The only interaction between characters I can remember is between Nadia and Lenya, and it’s just a fucking trope. Voice acting makes this even worse.
Voice acting pff ahahahah. The scene where Nadia read/mumbled a newspaper made me legit laugh in some hysteric fit! What a fucking insult to voice acting! And the empty soulless script just makes it worse! Only the main villain, monk and Lenya and mooks sound almost-alive.
I can’t really judge the movie’s ideological purity, since it’s (un)intentionally surreal, but it could be worse. In my opinion the worst insult to the past is the decision to write this shit plot instead of adopting some actual veteran’s war journey into an anime.
The only thing I can praise are the visuals and animation. (action is sorta clunky tbf…) Pre-war bright visuals of USSR are legit the only reason to watch this garbage. 2/10.
It’s a web novel and as far as I can tell the author is just some nobody, but 800k views is 800k views.
The sad thing is that the novel isn’t even openly anti-soviet or pro-imperial. It’s essentially just patriotic.
Anticommunism seem to be covert. The book is written mostly from a perspective of a 102 old dude, so having weird takes, homophobia and sexism there…actually makes it more authentic? I’m just guessing these are ideas the author also subscribes to.
Maybe I’m insane and what I’m complaining about isn’t even there, but authors’ ideological wiring seems to be a tangled mess.
Which is a waste, because the idea is relatively creative, world building is mostly fine, author knows some history and did research in some relevant areas (he sparsely uses terminology used in parapsychology), even if writing is sorta clunky. Most “authentic” Japanese isekai are much more lazy in comparison.
P.S. As I wrote this I remembered this shit take where author calls Marxism a religion. So damn typical ffs.
I read a first part of a weird Russian sorta-Isekai novel about a 102 year old WW2 veteran being sent to fight WW2 again in an alternative timeline where magic/ESP is real. (MC stays old, but gets healthier)
It was a bit entertaining, but I don’t rly like the writing style or homophobic jokes, and weird takes like “I won’t deny it - the Perestroika was necessary [since the USSR was corrupt]” coming from characters who saw the collapse of the USSR sorta seal the deal for me. I also can’t trust the author with putting words into historical figures’ mouths via unreal counterparts. The work just reeks of monarchist apologia and dumb patriotism so much. Women are also portrayed in a sort of disgusting way IMO.
There’s also this SUS line where author gives a definition to what “untermensch” means in the footnotes, and proceeds to say “yup, remember it - people like this really exist”. Who the author thinks falls under that category is anyone’s guess, but I don’t think it only includes the Nazis.
I think the way the MC got Isekai’d is glorious, despite being nonsensical and unrealistic, so kudos to author.
(I read it a few weeks ago and it’s about all of the interesting/relevant bits I remember rn. Novel name is “Позывной Хоттабыч”, it’s just a random find but it has some views.)
Most of this person’s activity has been on that sub for at least 7 years. They’re not baiting, they’re just obsessed lol. There’s also plenty of people who share their viewpoint.
I think what motivates them is bitterness, and that they’re likely being disingenuous, but what they’re trying to say is probably similar to what Zyuganov says in the speech below from 2021 that I dug up.
Note: Zyuganov uses weird expressions that are rarely used in modern speech so it’s a bit weird.
Headline: “Politicians determined the place of feminism in Russian politics” Text below headline: “Zyuganov said that womens’ parties go against nature”.
On May 30, the Russian-speaking Internet celebrates “international day of feminism” - an unofficial, if not fake, holiday dedicated to the day of the death of Joan of Arc. Gazeta.Ru talked to Russian senators and deputies about whether feminism is needed in politics and why there is not a single women’s or pro-feminist party in Russia today.
Chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation Gennady Zyuganov:
The most ingenious inventions of nature are a woman, flowers and a bee. The woman gave us all life, she bore all of us under her heart [means “gave birth” or “nurtured”, idk], so bow and show gratitude to her. Due to this, among all peoples everywhere, the mother is especially revered. Flowers germinate, produce seeds, and new plants sprout. And the bee is the main ecologist of the planet. Therefore, a woman should be treated first of all with love and respect. [ It’s not a mistranslation, just nonsense w/ hard to make connections ]
As for feminism, in my opinion this is a hobby that does nothing good for women. A woman today is forced to raise her children at home, often alone. Why? Because today a man [says “muzhik”] cannot feed his family. We have never had such a disgrace. I have a paternal grandfather, he had eight children, six of them were teachers, he bore everyone [it says so lol], fed everyone, raised everyone. Of course, the Soviet authorities helped, and, in general, it was easier for women. My mother has taught elementary school all her life.
As for the kindergarten, basically, women’s hands are nursing our children, making them full-fledged citizens, there are also a lot of female teachers in the school, and entire industries are in the hands of women. [means education system is dependent on women]
I don’t know what feminists do, other than talk a lot, but as for real power, if there were more women in power, there would be more order, more conscience, more care for children and the elderly.
Therefore, I am in favor of supporting women as much as possible, including by nominating them for deputy positions, for work. But at the same time, we must remember that nature created a woman in order to continue the human race and to decorate and ennoble our lives. Women should be loved, honored, bowed down and respected.
Women’s parties are complete nonsense. The main purpose of the party is to propose an idea, assemble a strong team, come to power and realize what they promise people. Is a women’s party truly capable of deciding/achieving something alone? Of course not, that is unnatural and abnormal. We have a lot of women in our party - intelligent, literate, they work superbly, many guys take their example and look up to them. The party is an idea. I am against men’s parties, women’s parties, pensioners’ parties, beer lovers’ parties and so on."
Article features interviews of various Russian politicians from different parties.
Basically every deputy and statesman interviewed (except 2 women) says “women are cool and we need them in politics, but feminism and women’s parties are a no-no/unnecessary”. Co-Chairman of “A Just Russia” said: “All parties in Russia have women/represent women. Feminism is evil”. Pushkov says “since 60-70s women’s liberation movements have turned into anti-men movements”. As expected, there’s lots of concerns over traditional family roles being degraded and “women will stop having children!!11”, etc.
This reality is really like a circus sometimes.
I agree, but he deserved far worse.
A death on a comfy hospital bed and at an old age is not retribution.
Official Russian media is expressing condolences and some are even singing him praise. It’s painful to see.
(To name a few ones from TASS, one brings up Arnold Schwarzenegger’s thoughts of all people, and another - UN General Secretary’s opinion where they say Gorby “did more than anyone to change the course for history and achieve a peaceful resolution of the Cold War, w/o bloodshed”. Infuriating.)
It may sound very jaded, but I envy people who can find joy in what happened. I’m mostly disappointed. His death undid nothing, and his legacy remains.
I’ve stumbled across transphobic and racist memes while searching for info, so maybe it’s a small glimpse into that legacy too. (…spoiler below explains what I’m complaining about)
Putin already expressed his “deep condolences”. (my source is a federal news agency)
"It seems Netflix is making a series about Gorbachev. This is, perhaps, the only instance when I wouldn’t be against Gorbachev being [played by] a negro-pederast [note - it’s literally what it says]. Maybe even a transgender…mentally disabed… "
(This meme is based on a tweet, the amount of likes it got is sad.)
“Title: Well then, now we wait for the film adaptation of his biography by Netflix?”
“[Says Gorby died today]. Now is the time for world’s cinema to commit to accurate and detailed recreation of Gorby’s visage on film:”
(Sorry for robotic translations, I can’t seem to find good words rn…)
These are (somewhat lazily) drawn in Inkscape from scratch.
Downloading existing icons and adjusting colors to match the site’s theme produces much better results. (tho idk how licenses work)
Anyone can do it and it’s stupidly easy tbf, so maybe people should just be encouraged to add icons to communities they moderate, if that’s what other users want too.
(And at the same time, making every icon have the same color scheme is very restrictive and strange - it would not work for every community, and it should not work this way. Somehow these icons make me think of McDonalds more than communism lol.)
Promoting their use is illegal where I live, so I’m obligated to disagree; and any leftist promoting their use would risk being thrown in jail and lose face over something most people have already been conditioned to detest.
I think outside Western countries, promoting their use may be of more harm than benefit.
Some communities on Lemmygrad don’t seem to have icons. It’s not something too horrible, but it irks me a little. (I have poor vision so icons actually help)
So I’ve made a few in jest. I don’t have any experience making icons or anything of the sort, so their readability is low. I can improve them/make more, but it would be good if someone actually competent made them instead.
Could you please ban their Beehaw account as well? It was tempbanned for 10 days before, and the ban expired a few days ago.
https://firstname.lastname@example.org - this one
What’s happening right now is a damn travesty, and CriticalResist being tempbanned is an awful signal.
I’ve seen some people (libs, with no doubt) say that content on lemmy is too political, but then people from Beehaw or Sopuli appear and say “join our instance bro, we’re totally not political bro”.
Can’t they just help by posting non-political content on lemmy.ml??? Why promote a new instance??? Most relevant communities already exist, even if there’s a lack of users?? (These are rhetorical questions, their real intent is obvious.)
I sense that there’s going to be some push to create a community w/ varied content (which will probably fail due to lack of users), w/ intent of saying “look at the commies, all they have is an echochamber with
boring toxic posts! let’s get these extremists defederated from lemmy.ml too!”
This instance has momentum, we could probably respond in kind.
This is just my opinion, and, as usual I’m clueless and probably wrong.
P.S. Pls remove this post if it may seem like I’m saying something sus.
P.P.S. Beehaw has issued a post explaining what they’re trying to accomplish, and it’s insanely verbose (my posts pale in comparison). I find some parts of their post sensible (regarding the matter of debates, or homophobia etc), and like them in principle, but IMO as a whole it’s insanely naive, and I sense it’s just an anglo effort that is too preoccupied with a vague and convenient idea of “niceness”. Recent behavior of their users is what I find strange. Plus, a nazi sympathizer is an active member of that instance, and they’re probably considered “nice”, since they’re not banned.
Frankly speaking, I’m skeptical of these threads, and I can’t understand them properly. So I just ignore them.
I don’t know much. Extremely basic knowledge about brain’s structure and function of some of its regions. I’ve skimmed a book on brain function once and read a short paper on progress on brain-machine interfaces for vision restoration once, but that’s it. (DOI:10.1007/s13311-018-0660-1)
Other than that, I have some basic awareness of the huge amount of cognitive biases. IMO studying some of them should be mandatory in school. Also stuff about memory is good to know.
I also guess that when you’re drawing a picture, you’re technically tricking the viewer (including yourself) that what you’re seeing is not actually a piece of paper with marks on it via techniques that rely on special characteristics of our perception in order to work.
Split-brain people (ppl w/ severed corpus callosum) are a very interesting subject too.
I can see what you’re saying, and agree w/ last paragraph, but it’s hardly a fight if one of the sides is just trying to remove itself from a minor annoyance.
It’s impossible to kill or severely injure a bear unarmed, regardless of how “strong” or “manly” a person is. That sort of mentality gets people killed; bear safety tips are taught for a reason.
There has been a story in 2021 about a boxer fighting a bear in Siberia - he killed it with a knife and sustained major injuries. That’s an amazing feat but it’s more or less a miracle he even survived.
lol no, if they did it I’d block them so doing that would be a waste of time. iirc they started posting cringe again for everyone to see and thankfully it gets removed. Their last comment w/ “what if the reds killed your 5 year old daughter tho???” nonsense was really stupid.
I just want them to reconsider what they’re doing with their time and stop voluntarily, if possible. also, big thanks to moderators.
The Allies were unwilling to put down some German Nazis from their High Command, IG Farben directors, judges, etc; there’s no damn way they’d execute one of their own generals, even if he was an absolute lunatic. (Look up Subsequent Nuremberg trials if you want to make your day worse)
Didn’t Churchill have similarly insane plans in regards to USSR and China? (Operaiton Unthinkable + some info is circulated about “nuking one out of 20-30 cities” prior to USSR developing its own nuclear weapons, idk)
You’re the one who suggested they died for a useless cause, disrespecting their sacrifice.
Have you ever read their war diaries? These people stood and fought for their convictions, don’t reduce their bravery to what you’ve come to interpret as fear of death.
Oh, right, you can’t read their war diaries because you’re a fucking anglo.
Keep believing bullshit about “half of the country was in prison, half was guarding them”, “human waves”, “those who retreated got shot!!111”. Utterly infantile. You’ve not read anything, you don’t know the language, you don’t respect history and expect to be taken seriously.
I don’t care about you or the debate, I only care about you disrespecting the legacy of the past, which is a miserable sight. Go die in a hole. Reported and blocked.
P.S. That was an impressive trolling effort! They actually knew the language! I was sent some message in Russian, but responding is a waste of time lol.
Yeah, mate, go on vilifying me while openly promoting violation of human rights. When millions of your own people tortured, worked to death, and sent to frontlines to die in a useless cause, don’t forget to blame it on me, random stranger on the internet expressing his concerns.
Soviet people faced the Nazi Germany in a war of annihilation, where the existence of millions upon millions of people was at stake, due to Nazis wanting to use that space as Lebensraum, and the people as cattle. Please don’t denigrate millions of martyrs.
I’m not going to respond to you if you’re unwilling to go through the effort of freeing yourself from neoliberal propaganda spread by entities which would have been extremely overjoyed if Nazi won WW2 instead. Read a fucking book, and at least learn to troll in a less blatant manner
Heard of trains, haven’t you? Also why waste space leaving trains empty on the way back from delivering raw materials, let’s put all the political opposition there.
Yes, I’m talking precisely about train transportation being expensive, dummy. Believe it or not, the trip to Siberia eats up a lot of fuel and also takes a long time, during which people need to be fed, and looked at by doctors so they’re not dead before arriving to work in camps.
(P.S. if you’re unaware, you can’t put people in random freight wagons. Russians had special railway wagons for transporting prisoners since before Revolution, and you can’t just put prisoners in one place w/ each other…)
You glow very bright mate, like an angler fish in abyssal depths.
No gulags, remember.
Why? No country that wants to secure its existence would allow dangerous political opponents, saboteurs, spies and criminals to roam free. A MI6 agent would know that, right? Are you going to complain about the Red Army existing next?
Gulag is a Tsarist invention, and mortality in its camps in the USSR was low except for WW2 years - go look at French Labour Camps before crying about evil bolsheviks. People in gulag camps were paid salaries, had doctors and a certain snitch writer (Solzhenitsyn) was even cured of cancer there.
For your reference, gulag stands for “main management of (work correction) camps”. There is no plural “gulags”. And believe it or not, not everyone was sent to SIberia. Transporting people there is expensive.
And since you hate forced labor soooo much, I take it that you’re not a big fan of the slave trade either, in which the brits happily engaged?
Let me state here that I’ve seen real life communism with my own eyes. A loved one of mine died because a Soviet style medical committee didn’t want to contradict their alumni, so I couldn’t get an investigation started. etc etc
Please piss off. Most impoverished people in my country rely on remnants of Soviet healthcare to survive, because they wouldn’t be able to afford overpriced privatized healthcare. A babushka can’t get shots or a surgery at a private clinic, believe it or not.
And why are you not crying the inefficiency of the capitalist system, which puts profits above lives of diabetics, for example? lMao.
You’ve at most seen socialism. When communism will be built, people will be educated and your level of ignorance will not exist en masse.
My main problem with far left as a opposition to capitalism is general lack of concrete ways to achieve claimed moral goals.
If revolutionary masses had no ways of achieving their goals, you wouldn’t be seething about their supposed excesses on the internet.
P.S. If your goal is to write nonsense and get people to waste their time responding to it, you’ve succeeded - congratulations.
I would be quick to dismiss them as losers, but these people produce original content of higher quality than r/GenUSA. (Higher quality in terms of execution - they’re better at editing images)
It may grow bigger, but who rly cares, it’s just libs seething and coping on the internet.
P.S. Thanks for sharing.
Part 1 of Article 121 was excluded from the Criminal Code of the RSFSR on May 27, 1993.
Sodomy, as such, ceased to be a crime in Russia; but it was preserved as a sign of composition [TN: ???] in Articles 132, 133, 134 of the new Criminal Code of the Russian Federation adopted in 1996.
These articles establish liability for violent acts of a sexual nature (Article 132), compulsion to act of a sexual nature (Article 133) and sexual intercourse and other acts of a sexual nature with a person under the age of sixteen (Article 134).
According to the decision of the Plenum of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation of June 15, 2004, explaining to the courts the specifics of the application of Articles 131 and 132 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, sodomy refers to sexual contacts between men.
It should be noted that the sanction for the above crimes is identical to the sanction for similar crimes involving ordinary heterosexual sexual intercourse, so we cannot talk about any discrimination here. The differences are of a formal nature: the legislator considered it fundamental to separate the concepts of “sexual intercourse” - sexual intercourse between a man and a woman (one of the possible consequences of which is the conception of a child), and “other acts of a sexual nature.”
The victims of Article 121 were not officially recognized as victims of political repression, which is sought by a number of human rights organizations. The Russian Network of LGBT Organizations declared 2009 the Year of Remembrance for Gay and Lesbian Victims of Political Repression.

Most trans subreddits seem to be rly against DIY (for good reasons), and I think since most people there are Westerners they have a different perception of what is expensive and what is not. I also don’t have a reddit account, and maybe I did not expect an answer. (question is mostly rhetorical)
Thanks for responding regardless. :)
Some RT Journalist (Anton Krasovsky) made some insane statements saying “brainwashed ukrainian children should be drowned and burned” or killed in some other ways. (source, it’s the first one I found with english subs. sorry if it’s shit.)
The guy legit sounds like a psycho. Why do they put such comically evil and unstable people on TVs and let them broadcast “public opinion”? Good job giving Western media more propaganda fuel RT!
He’s been suspended and some response has been made but the damage is already done. Don’t care that he “apologized”. One of CPRF deputies compared him to Hitler lol.
There’s plenty of grounds for legal action but I think everyone knows what someone like him really deserves. His remarks are being investigated by authorities.
Given his background (he’s openly gay) tho I feel like this case could’ve been an attempt at a psyop. (Talking about how it may have been related to recent anti-LGBT lawsuits. See this telegram post for explanation. Not saying I agree with it, it’s just sus. Why am I always forced to bring up this topic lmao)
